Took 8 1/2 innings but #Pirates finally found a pitcher who could get both Brandons out. Maybe Mark Melancon should save the ball?

Tony Watson and Mark Melancon have good seats for this game, at least.

Note to Clint Hurdle: You have to use Mark Melancon like this.

Hurdle was smart there. Better to lose the game now rather than risk Mark Melancon not being able to collect a save.

I assume Mark Melancon was unavailable because he was abducted by aliens or something?

#Pirates bullpen: Watson available again tonight. Melancon iffy after pitching in four of past five games. Pimentel had sim game today.
